Bentonite clay provides a great medium as a detoxification treatment, because it is safe and highly effective. Clay has an alkaline pH and high negative ionic charge that act as powerful antioxidants. These attributes allow bentonite clay to help alkalize the body and pull toxic pathogens and environmental toxins out of the body cleanly.Clay is a grouping of super charged minerals that are lying inert. They get their negative electromagnetic charge from the thermodynamic heat that created the clay many years earlier. When combined with water, the clay gains strength and energizes the body. It also has the ability to adsorb an enormous amount of toxins as a sponge-like magnet and carry them out of the body.Clay baths utilize clay's strong drawing powers to help pull toxic debris out through the pores of the skin. Through a pulsing action, clay will pull out infectious organisms, heavy metals and other major toxin. Face Mask: For smooth and healthy skin, I make a paste of bentonite and water and apply to face as a mask. Leave on for 20 minutes and wash off. Typically do this once or twice a week. On the Skin: Externally, apply a paste of bentonite clay and water on any skin problems like blemishes, insect bites, cuts, skin itching, or burns. Leave it on until it dries and wash off. This is said to be especially calming to skin itching problems.
